Newsflash Nigeria gathered that the Retired Supreme Court Justice, Justice Mary Ego Odili, who is the current Body’s Vice Chairman will succeed Chief Wole Olanipekun SAN.
Recall that longing into Chief Wole Olanipekun’s emergence as BoB Chair, the Body and the NBA have been involved in a cold war following calls by some leaders within the Association for Olanipekun, SAN, to step down as Chairman following a ‘publicly perceived indictment’ on his person.
An indictment tied to ‘Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Mr. Odein Ajumogobia SAN over an email from Ms. Adekunbi Ogunde, a Partner in Wole Olanipekun & Co, allegedly soliciting to take over a brief his law firm was handling from his client, SAIPEM SPA’.
